Party Panda Center Explosion Card

Hello and welcome to day 5 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration countdown! As promised, today’s card is something completely different using the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper! This super cute card is actually from Dawn Griffith and you can watch her video here. She does a great job in explaining how to make this card, so I will let you get the details and cuts from there. However, I will explain how I made my CASE’d version!

I will have to admit that when making this card you need 12” x 12” cardstock and any of my cardstock is old, I mean old, but it still works! Just means I need to update that supply! Lol

I used Basic Gray as a base layer, Bubbles & Fizz for my choice of DSP, and Party Pandas stamp set because I made this card for a special young lady that turned 18.

For the front, I stamped the panda holding the balloon in Memento Ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. I then cut four balloons using the Balloon Bouquet Punch in Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral, and Bermuda Bay cardstock. I used the Labeler Alphabet stamp set to stamp each letter in her name in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder. I tied Black Metallic Thread around the balloon end and then adhered together at the panda’s paw with the silver foil heart from the Metallic Enamel Shapes. I popped two of the balloons up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the front inside layer, I stamped the panda with the party hat on in Memento ink, coloring in the hat with Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, and Bermuda Bay Stampin Write Markers. The same color markers where used to color the confetti stamp that is around the panda.

For the back inside layer, I stamped the panda holding the letter in Memento ink, coloring the heart with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker. The sentiment is from the Party Panda set and is stamped in Calypso Coral ink.

I used a piece of Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon to tie the card closed.

Lovely Flowers

Hello and welcome to day 4 of this week’s Sale-A-Bration countdown! Today’s card will by my final creation using the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP. I know, sad face L! I really do enjoy using this paper and I could go on, but I’ve got other ideas and more Sale-A-Bration products to share! For this card, I really wanted to show the simplicity in creating a stunning card with a few simple products, including a Q-Tip!

The card base is Calypso Coral cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and the base layer is Springtime Foils Specialty DSP cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.

When I first started coloring in the flowers with Sponge Daubers, it was to create a soft look and purposely coloring outside the lines, but the control wasn’t what I wanted, so hence a Q-Tip! I actually used Precision Tips to color in the flowers in Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral inks and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink. I really love how these turned out! I tied a piece of the Shimmer Ribbon in Calypso Coral in a bow around the DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Blossoming Basket stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink, punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch and sponged Calypso Coral ink around the edge. The DSP is adhered to the card base with Snail and then sentiment is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the ribbon.

Sale-A-Bration Countdown!

Hello and welcome to a new week and a new theme! As you may know, the countdown for Sale-A-Bration is near us, March 31st! So, that means you have less than two weeks to earn any free items that you’ve had your eye on! I decided to change things up a bit and instead of 3 days of ideas, you’re going to get 5!! This week I am featuring the Designer Series Papers that you can earn from Sale-A-Bration, Bubbles & Fizz and Springtime Foils. I really hope you enjoy all these creations I’m sharing with you!

For my first card, I am using the silver striped Springtime Foils Specialty DSP with the Magical Mermaid stamp set. I wasn’t sure how or what I was going to do, but I knew that I wanted to use Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Tempting Turquoise with this DSP.

The card base is in Bermuda Bay, 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP is 4” x 5 ¼”.

I colored the DSP using a Sponge Brayer and Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Tempting Turquoise inks, starting at the bottom in that order. From the Magical Mermaid stamp set, I used the long stamp with the crabs and shells and stamped along the bottom in Crumb Cake ink. Next, I stamped the seaweed stamp in Tranquil Tide ink just above, trying to make it look like an ocean floor. The mermaid was stamped in Memento ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then the tail is colored in with Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Tempting Turquoise inks using Sponge Daubers. The mermaids back and arm is colored in with the Ivory Stampin’ Blends and hair is colored in with Light Crumb Cake, Light Calypso Coral, and Bronze Stampin’ Blends. I added some Wink of Stella to the tail for a shimmer effect.

The sentiment is also from the Magical Mermaid stamp set, which I used Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the word, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, and used the 2nd smallest oval Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out. I felt that looked a little bland, so I stamped the long stamp with the crab and shells in Crumb Cake ink.

Before I started putting the card together, I ran the card base front thru the Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. To put the card together, I adhered the mermaid and the sentiment to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then used more Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the DSP to the card base. For added effect, I used the circle glitter shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

Unicorns, Glitter, and Rainbows

Hello and welcome to my final card this week featuring the Myths & Magic Suite from the 2018 Occasions Catalog! Ok, I will admit that not everything is from the suite on this card, but I just couldn’t help myself! I just had to make this super WOW card with the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle because who doesn’t need some Unicorns, Glitter, and Rainbows?? This card is really easy to make, the hardest part was figuring out how I wanted the clouds on the lower part of the card and how to position the unicorns and the rainbow with dimensionals so they really stand out.

The card base is in Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, and the base layer is from the Myths & Magic Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”.

The clouds are from the Rainbow Builder Dies, using Glossy White cardstock and the Myths & Magic 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper in iridescent.

The rainbow is cut out using the Rainbow Builder Framelits in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Night of Navy, and Elegant Eggplant cardstock.

The unicorns are stamped in Memento Ink, with one colored the same as the rainbow and the other colored in with Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write Markers. Both are cut out with the coordinating die from the Magical Mates Framelits.

The sun is stamped in Crushed Curry Ink and then cut out with the coordinating die from the Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle. The sentiment is heat embossed in White Embossing Powder and then cut out with the smallest circle Stitched Shapes Framelits.

To put this all together, the clouds, rainbow, and unicorns are all adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and everything else is with adhesive.

Isn’t this a fun card to send to someone just because?
